GOLF EDUCATION MADE EASY FOR EVERYONE
I wanted to meet with the folks at almostGOLF...I had been using them in the backyard and, to my wife's consternation, in the family room. How does a little practice golf ball get marketed globally? A coup for the company was to get noted golf instructor and short game guru, Dave Pelz involved. "There are no more excuses for not practicing." Said Pelz, who uses them in his school.

It is an innovative, fun and effective way to stay on top of your game right in your backyard."

THE MAN ABOUT TOWN: By David Owen
Mower-free advice for working in the yard. Unlike David Toms in that PGA Tour commercial, I don’t hit shots at my house on purpose. Accidents happen, though. I’ve broken nearly every window and cracked the windshield of my wife’s car. To maintain domestic peace, I tried many alternatives to real golf balls. Recently, I found something much better. It’s a resilient practice ball made by a company called almostGolf.
FOR THE GOLFER WHO DOESN’T QUITE HAVE EVERYTHING
Golfers love gadgets and they are constantly on the lookout for anything that can improve their game, even if ever so slightly. The Point3 golf ball- made by almostGOLF- is soft enough to be used in backyards or for pitching practice into, say, a bedroom curtain for those truly golf-obsessed.
almostGOLF OUT MANEUVERS HOLLOW PRACTICE BALLS
There is no way a hollow plastic golf ball can give you a true feedback on a golf shot. However, the new Point3 golf ball has a solid core, internal pressure and is perfectly weighed to travel, spin and fly limited distance.
